Enquiry of the Day / Week / Month / Year / All-Time

Of all the hilarious incorrect enquiries I've ever had when working in a music store, the one I had today ranks as an all-time classic:

Young woman: "Excuse me, do you have any Edgar Allan Poe CDs?"

Me, bewildered: "Um...he was a poet and author of horror stories."

Young woman: "No, he's a country singer."

Me, cracking up inside: "I think you mean David Allan Coe."

Young woman: "Yeah, that's him! Do you have his CDs?"

(Image above: Edgar Allan Poe in his little discussed, none-too-successful redneck outlaw country period.)
